Weighing automation is a process used to measure the weights of materials automatically. These systems are used in all industries to measure materials from raw material phase to final product phase. The dependence of industries on the weighing methods is growing as these methods offers high accuracy and also can be used for multiple purposes. Weighing automation system works in two manners the first one is that it senses the measurement of weight and converts them into electrical form. Furthermore, large industries are rapidly shifting from manual weighing machines to innovative electronic weighing machines and also huge investments are being done in various manufacturing industries in order to get automated handling devices.

Material’s weight measurement is one of the most momentous factors in any industry. There are several advantages provided by weighing automation as compared to manual weighing method such as high dependability, high accuracy, compact size, advanced systems which offer online processing and flexibility of weighing many loads. Such advantages are noticeably boosting the growth of weighing automation market. Furthermore, weighing automation system includes automatic instigation facility which supports the operator to enter the factors and very little training is required to operate these systems. Such factors are positively influencing the market growth. Precise measurement of weight is a major aspect for quality control of process as well as product. Automation is becoming the strength of the reduction of operational cost due to growing labor costs and technological advancements. The capability of automated machines to execute multiple tasks faster than humans along with high accuracy and almost zero errors, has made automation the new drift in the market. The weights can be determined accurately up to decimal points and the automation method has been made easy due to the development of digital weighing machines, thereby propelling the growth of global weighing automation market. Weighing automation is used in various applications such as quality control, simple weighing and accurate filling of finished products. With the automation of simple weighing a lot of time and effort can be saved, hence several industries are increasingly adopting weighing automation. However, weighing automation requires electricity to operate and without the electricity supply the automation machines are of no use. Thus, for regions with electricity shortage may not adopt this method in their industries. This factor may restrict the growth of weighing automation market.
